There is a HUGE difference between an immigration bill granting equal rights to same-sex partners, and an immigration bill rewarding foreigners for violating our laws. I suspect they realize they won’t get enough support unless they include legitimate issues involving U.S. citizens. They are separate issues, and should receive independent consideration.

Quote:
This Friday, Congress will hold two briefings which signal the beginning of immigration reform efforts. Those two events - one focused on family immigration policies and one on the much-needed DREAM Act .

So it's no mistake, and welcome news, that Friday's family immigration event will include a voice from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, too.

And in today's issue of The Hill, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) call on lawmakers to support their bill, The Uniting American Families Act, and include the measure in upcoming immigration reform bills.

"This bill would grant same-sex couples the same immigration benefits -- and responsibilities -- as opposite-sex couples, under the same existing legal framework," they write.

There is always some garbage attached to these bills. The only way this would pass is to attach it to something of value. How about putting it to a tax payer vote?

They are notorious for attaching items that are completely unrelated and that don't have enough support to pass on their own to big ticket items.
